Rural Health Opioid Program
The Rural Health Opioid Program provides grants to consortia made up of at least 3 healthcare providers that propose to expand the delivery of opioid related healthcare services, with the intent of reducing the morbidity and mortality related to opioid overdoses in rural communities.
Consortia are expected to work towards:
- Identifying individuals at-risk of overdose and guide them towards recovery by providing outreach and education on locally available treatment options and support services
- Educating community members on opioid use disorder, incorporating education, treatment options, methods for preparing individuals for treatment, referring individuals to treatment, and how to best support individuals in recovery
- Implement care coordination practices to organize patient care activities
- Support individuals in recovery by establishing new or enhancing existing behavioral counseling and peer support activities
Eligible applicants include rural public or nonprofit entities that represent consortia composed of 3 or more healthcare providers and entities such as social service and faith-based organizations, law enforcement, and other community-based groups. One member of the consortium will act as the grantee and submit the application.
